This school has come a long way under new leadership. The principal has had to endure a lot of criticism and scrutiny from all directions yet remains strong and focused on the mission. It would be great if there was more parent involvement, though that is coming along. We are a small community which is nice because everyone kind of watches out for everyone's children; we are not all strangers. My daughter looks forward to going to school every day and loves the after school programs and extra sports.

My son loves this school. CAS is a great environment for him to succeed in. Teachers follow your child's progress closely. The staff is awesome. CAS is a STEM school that is preparing our youngsters for the future. Kudos to the current leadership and staff for making this a great institution.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
